Rolling over a reserve list makes a copy of your existing list and attaches the new copy to the course of your choosing (for example, you may wish to make a copy for the same course but in a new semester.)
The rollover process makes a copy of the list, all the files and citations it contains, tags and public notes. Due dates and section dates are cleared. You have the option whether to copy reading list collaborators and student discussions when you roll over the list.
After rolling over, you may edit the rolled over list as needed. This doesn't change the original list, just the copy made during the rollover.
It is important to make a copy/roll over rather than using the same list over and over in order to get valid use statistics for each semester and to reset student discussions and due dates.
See the appropriate section below for instructions on rolling over your reserve list to a new semester. The procedures vary depending upon whether you are rolling over a list created:
If you wish to reuse a list created prior to Fall 2020, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the original course number, the new course number, and the semester in which you plan to use it. The Library Reserve Department will migrate the old list from our original Eres or print reserve system to the new Course Reserve system and notify you when complete.
To reuse lists from Fall 2020 and beyond, follow the below instructions.
If you wish to reuse a list and you will not be using Moodle in the new course, email email@example.com with the original course number and semester, the new course number, and the semester in which you plan to use it.
The Library Reserve Department will roll over the list to the new course and semester and notify you when complete.
At that point you will be able to access Course Reserve, find the new list and make any desired changes to it.
Result: The new list is a copy of the old list and is now attached to the Moodle course and term you started from.
After you roll over your list, you need to:
After you roll over your list, the original list will warn you that there is a newer copy of the list available. This is just a reminder to help you think about whether you are editing the correct version of the list. Only you see this warning; your students do not.
You may continue to edit and add resources to both the new and old list -- just remember that they will not be synchronized again after the rollover, so be sure you are adding the new citations to the correct list.
